So, since this "update" didn't include any of the bug fixes or new features that the international got, and only RIPPED out the search device feature to appease Apple, I see ZERO reason to update. I'll be staying on my rooted UCALEM stock for a while (until CM10 draws its first breath)

On another note, before I go looking, does someone know how to permanently ignore the update notifications if you choose to postpone?

I believe you freeze device management through titanium back-up.

Did you install CWM (a customer recovery) after your stock root? If you did you can just install this:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1732039

Then just remove the update service from the phone using Aroma. If ever ready/want to install an available over the air update just revert back to UCLEM stock rom and your update service will be re-installed. That's what I did.

What he said...
Get TiBu and freeze every single at&t app you have. I also froze anything with Samsung on it to including kies.
Unless an update is critical I never update cuz it's usually after the fact you find out "they took away my root..."
"they removed what? "...etc. etc .
My phone. My way.

Yeah, thanks. I've already frozen just about every bloatapp except SVoice and KiesAir, but I'll go freeze this now and thaw it out to check again later if needbe.

GoogleQuickSearchBox.apk does work and fixes the searching, but once you reboot it goes away and needs to be installed again. Is there a fix for this?

I'm not sure, but depending on how you installed it it may be able to remain after reboot. For example, if you installed it like any other application (i.e. From your phone) the application was installed in your data folder. But, if you tried installing the apk using adb to your system folder it might hold thru reboot. I could be wrong but give it a try it might work

Is there a way to flash the kernel and baseband from this OTA only? Assuming they might provide improvements.
